Burning plastic smell

I have a 2012 sonata 2.0t. It just turned 2000 miles, and when driven there is a smell of burnt plastic when you turn the car off coming from underneath as if its the converter. Is this normal? And yes, I have made sure nothing is stuck to the exhaust system. I thought that it was the new coating on the converter when the car was new. That should have burnt off by now. Anyone have any advice?? Thanks.

About how long till it goes away. One would think 2000 miles is plenty of time for something to burn away. I'm just wondering if it may be a more serious problem.
